Dicky Betts, former lead guitarist and one of the founding members of the Allman Brothers, rocked Maddie's in Malvern in front of a sold out crowd last night. Dicky took the stage at 8:47 and the crowd went wild. Some 1st set highlights included Statesboro Blues, Stormy Monday (the girl singing had some great pipes) and an awesome version of Blue Sky.
Unfortunately my compadres were a little too loopy to make it past the first song of the 2nd set, but I kept on keepin' on. And I was not disappointed. He jammed out Southbound and a great Elizabeth Reed just to name a few. I also got to see two hot chics making out. Maddie's was about 80% guys and I think everyone's attention was focused on these two at one time or another. It was hot.
For the encore Dicky gave us Jessica and Ramblin' Man. Jessica was phenominal, he could have walked off stage after that and I would have been ecstatic, but no, he goes into Ramblin' Man....unbelievable. The show ended at 12:12 with the crowd going insane. The guy is a legend.
Three games into his NFL career, Carson Wentz might need a bigger trophy case.
The 23-year-old, who picked up his first NFC Offensive Player of the Week award for his performance against Pittsburgh, has been named the NFL's Offensive Rookie of the Month for September.
Yes, Wentz's first NFL month was a special one.
The No. 2 pick from North Dakota State has completed 64.7 percent of his passes for 769 yards, five touchdowns and zero interceptions. He's the first rookie in NFL history to put up those numbers in the first three games of a career. And his 102 straight passing attempts without an interception is also a rookie record.
It's hard to believe that a little over a week before the season began, Wentz was scheduled to be the Eagles' third-string quarterback and have a redshirt year. That all changed when de facto GM Howie Roseman traded away starter Sam Bradford and the team decided to start the rookie.
While many thought the decision to start Wentz was the beginning of a long rebuilding year, the rookie has the Eagles off to a fast 3-0 start. Wentz has played very well, but has also been aided by a stout defense, led by NFC Defensive Player of the Month Fletcher Cox.
This week, Wentz is spending some time hunting while the Eagles are on their bye week. He bagged another trophy on Thursday.
The team will be back in action on Oct. 9 in Detroit to face the Lions.

Joel Embiid really trusts the process.
And he'll tell you as much over and over.
In fact, JoJo said it so much yesterdady that he was cracking himself up about just how much he trusts the process.
By most accounts, Joel was a bit rusty in the first couple of practices to kick off training camp, but, you know, you've just got to trust the process.
And he does. Trust the process.
